seen crashes that haven't led to that response. It all comes down to the people who are involved and their interpretations of the situation as it's happening.

only person who lost anything to Chavanel on stage 2 is Cancellara himself.

When the yellow jersey speaks, the peloton listens most of the time. So when race leader Fabian Cancellara called for the front group to back off the throttle and ride a steady pace following today's major crash, the group slowed down. Would a different rider in the yellow jersey have made the same call if he didn't have teammates involved in the crash who are contenders for the overall victory? That's hard to say. And it's the group's choice whether to listen to him or ignore him.

Before the 2010 Tour de France began, people knew that Stage 2 could potentially have a big impact on the first week of racing, and on the long term race for the yellow jersey. Now that Stage 2 is in the books, we know it did, but not necessarily in the way anyone anticipated. Following a massive crash on the descent from the Col de Stockeu, the peloton rode a controlled and steady pace all the way to the finish, allowing fallen riders to rejoin the front group and Frenchman Sylvain Chavanel to gain a 3 minute lead, the stage win, and the yellow jersey. One of the questions I've been asked several times already is, "Who makes these decisions?"

Chavanel was way out of the Nike Thea Mens GC contest before stage 2, but he fought his way into the brake early on in the stage. so he had no obligations as race leader and legitimately won the stage because of his efforts BEFORE the mayhem. Chavanel has never won a grand tour and will not finish this year's TDF in yellow. He has only won one other stage victory at the TDF in a decade of racing. therefore, the Air Max 2015 Blue And White

Whether the peloton grants the request of the yellow jersey has a lot to do with who's wearing it. Yes, Cancellara may have acted in his team's best interest by neutralizing the front group, but he's a very well respected rider who has a reputation of being fair, courageous in the face of risk, and interested in the safety of the entire peloton. In short, he's a leader by nature who happened to also be the leader of the bike race. He's a person the riders will listen to, which means he was able to convince them to follow his lead. A weaker leader, even with the yellow jersey, may not have made the same request, nor have been able to accomplish the same result.2
